Modeling of Helical Pile Connectors


For the shown three-piece helical pile connector, it was proposed to use the cyclic models shown below to account for its seismic performance. The Helical Pile Connectors Model is specific to the tested connectors and their validity have to be checked for other helical pile connectors.
